Most electronic data protection policies do not any liability coverage. So if an electronic data loss incurs any liability to a third party, you most likely do not have any coverage.

EDP insurance typically will not cover any losses due to mistakes in processing electronic data, or in the design or implementation resulting from or support of your computer systems or networks unless those mistakes result in a covered claim that subsequently destroys the data.
